JENNIFER CAMPBELL: People are really excited. They all think the truck is insanely amazing. COMM: Retired monster truck racers Brad and Jennifer Campbell have built the world’s
longest monster truck – The Sin City Hustler. JENNIFER CAMPBELL: The inspiration behind building the monster truck, well a lot of
it just actually comes from our race experience. We took a lot of the components of a race truck. JENNIFER CAMPBELL: We decided, you know, we better go big. Brad, if he’s gonna do something,
he has to do it bigger and better than everybody else. We found this ginormous limo and it
all started from there. That’s not every day you get to build the world’s longest
monster truck. The process for building the truck was actually pretty impressive. Brad
and our employee Mike actually did most of the fabrication work and the design work.
They built the chassis and the roll cage and all of the custom paneling, things like that.
Put everything together. The build itself took 15 months, what started out as, ‘We
can get it done in 3-4 months’ turned in to a bigger project then either of us anticipated.
They just did everything by hand. So 15 months and I’m not gonna lie, I cried when I saw
it pull out of the shop, I was so excited. The engine size for the car, it’s a 521 Big
Block Ford. The estimated horsepower, somewhere 750+ horsepower. One of the things about monster
trucks that draws people in is the tires and the wheels, people are like amazed by these
things and they’re 66 inches tall, so I totally understand, they’re huge. We built
the truck to hold 12 passengers. COMM: This gigantic truck is worth a staggering 1 million dollars. JENNIFER CAMPBELL: You know one of the coolest parts about being with this monster truck
is seeing people’s reactions to the truck. People are really excited, they all think
the truck is insanely amazing. When you see it in person, it’s, it’s insane. It literally
is, makes you speechless. It’s just crazy! We offer tours in the monster truck, they
are not really tours so much as they are a thrill ride. It’s about 5 minutes, and we
go through some canyons over the hills. It’s a pretty extreme ride. I used to raise monster
trucks professionally. So for me to say it’s pretty awesome, actually means a lot, it kinda
holds a lot and I’m not, not just not a pretty face here so, it’s pretty cool. That’s
what we do.
